With Mother’s Day right around the corner, the student’s here at Samueli Academy could not be more prepared to celebrate and thank their moms. “ Often times mothers go unnoticed, it’s a day for us to stop reconnect and be grateful for all the things our moms do for us, we couldn’t be here without our mothers
Often times mothers go unnoticed it’s a day for us to stop reconnect and be grateful for all the things our moms do for us, we couldn’t be here without our mothers,” said Coach, freshman English teacher. While he may have only called his mother last year, it’s the thought that counts.
There are so many different ways teachers and students celebrate Mother’s Day. From going out to dinner, to buying them flowers, the options are endless.
Rosemary De Tamo sticks to the same trend of flowers but takes her mom out to eat for all 3 meals of the day: breakfast, lunch and dinner! We know Mrs De Tamo must be eating good. “The best gift we’ve got my mom is a car,” said Rosemary. If you’re looking to steer away (what a pun) from flowers and chocolates, a car is the way to go.
Another amazing gift is the ones we need right when we wake up. That’s why junior Alfredo Mar made his mom breakfast in bed last year and got her beautiful flowers. “ It’s the least I could do, she’s done a lot for us,” Alfredo stated. This simple gesture is sure to warm your mom’s heart.
However, it’s the little things that mean the most and can sometimes be the best. Jose Duran got his mom chocolates and flowers but the best gift she received was the hugs and kisses he gave her. It’s the little things that count so this loving act was sure to put a smile on her face. “She’s my mom, she’s the one that’s always there for me,” Jose said.
As you can see, Mother’s Day is a day to take time and appreciate all moms do, although, lets be honest here, there should be a Daughter Day too. The options of gift ideas are endless, but the best ones come from your heart. If you forget to get a gift, use the old “ I am your gift.” Usually, it results with a deadly look from her, but deep down she knows it’s true. All in all, mothers our are gift and this day is to appreciate them in all their glory.
